Original Cast from Fan Favorite Home Design Show to Appear in Advance of the Series’ Return to Television
As host Paige Davis used to say, “Times up!” The wait is finally over! Grab your painting smocks and gather your family and neighbors, TLC will premiere a special TRADING SPACES reunion this coming spring with the original cast reuniting for the first time since the show went off the air in 2008. TRADING SPACES was the first home makeover series of its kind and launched a generation of shows to follow in the television home design genre.
Appearing in the special are original cast members Amy Wynn Pastor, Carter Oosterhouse, Doug Wilson, Frank Bielec, Genevieve Gorder, Hildi Santo-Tomas, Laurie Smith, Paige Davis, Ty Pennington and Vern Yip. Also, making their TRADING SPACES debut are new designers and carpenters: Brett Tutor, Joanie Sprague, John Gidding, Kahi Lee and Sabrina Soto who can also be seen on the upcoming TRAINING SPACES airing on TLCGO this spring.
Hosted by Lisa Joyner (TLC’s “Long Lost Family”), the cast will reminisce about their favorite moments working together and what it was like to be a part of a pop culture phenomenon. They’ll discuss the influence the show had on the current television home design genre, what their favorite room transformations were and what they look forward to when the series returns in the spring.
